Paradise Country @ Gold Coast Review




Since our last trip to The Animal Resort in Singapore, we had been thinking about farms. During our last holiday in Gold Coast, we had a stopover at Paradise Country @ Gold Coast . We did not blog about it due to  an unexpected family event .


After our latest encounter with farm animals, we decided to document our trip at Paradise Country and give you a glimpse of what to expect if you choose to visit Paradise Country. As this is the school holiday, this guide might come in handy for those who are visiting Gold Coast.





Things to do at Paradise Country 
Never been to a farm?

Paradise Country will bring you close to a farm in it's natural setting. Nestled on the same stretch of road as Movieworld. A visit there will be a good additional to the thrills and spills of the next door neighbours. We reckon a half day visit should suffice for a day out at Paradise Country.

Here are some of the highlights of the show.

Watch the farms shows

The farm shows were a hit at Paradise Country. Watch a sheepdog in action and learn how to milk a cow. Boomerang man was also on site to show you how a bommerang works!



After the outdoor performance, head indoors to watch sheeps have their 'haircuts' ( sheep shearing)

Get up close to the performers

After the performances, you can get up close to the 'performers' and take a photo or two.



Most of the photo taking are free, but you do need to pay extra for a photo with the Koalas.

Spot the animals at Paradise Country

Feed the Kangeroos


Another highlight of the trip would be to feed the Kangeroos. Compared to Curumbin Wildlife Sanctuary,  there were less kangeroos to feed. Still it was fun for kids ( and adults) to feed them.

Visit the Animal Nursery

After the big animals , it is time to visit the smaller ones.

We almost miss this part, but we were glad to find it.


Here you can find little pigs, guinea pigs, lambs, chicks and alpacas




The animal nursery would be a hit with the kids.


Look for Gold and Opal


Other activities include looking for gold or digging for opal in an opal mine.


The boys did the latter. We headed down to a mini mine and chip away at designated spot for opals.





The activity was over in 10 minutes. We were very sure actual opal mining will take a much longer time than this.

At the end of it we got ourselves a certificate and some opals to take home. The extra activities do cost extra and was not part of the entrance fee.

Paradise Country would be a good day trip for urbanites like us.

Paradise Country is a little far from Singapore. 6153 km to be exact. However if you are in Gold Coast for holiday, you might like to make a detour there.
